Cleaning out the scrap drawers is done for now. I did not touch the white, black, batik, nor flannel scrap drawers.
The number of 2.5" squares just grew and grew. I ended with this large basket of squares after I pulled out 300 squares for a quilt. An idea occurred to me so I pulled squares and put them in a project bag. There are a few thousand squares in this basket!
The green drawer was the last one emptied. That's the reason there are so many green squares at the top of the heap.
Now I have this smaller basket full of strings - none of them is large enough to cut a 2 1/2" square. I think there will be some string blocks in the future.
Look at the empty scrap drawers! There are 5 totally empty drawers at the moment.That will change as I clean out the large drawers - I know there are some smaller pieces of fabric hiding in them.
Most baskets are empty and the piles are gone. This basket has many same sized rectangles. Someday they'll become a quilt but I don't have a plan yet so I won't put them in a project bag.
And this last basket has orphan blocks. Someday I'll go through them. I think I need a bigger basket.
There is plenty more cleaning that could take place but I think I've done enough! Now it's time to sew.
